You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Pay for a sailing instructor to take you and give you a lesson along the way. The cost will be worth it in that your first sail on the boat will be fun and at the end of the experience you will know enough about sailing to keep sailing the boat on your own.

My recommendation: contact the local Yacht club. You'll find a wealth of knowledgeable people that can help you. Surveys are a great step but there are to many other variables.

I'm sure he did have a BLAST, hopefully not literally since we haven't heard from him in 3 years!

With no sailing experience whatsoever, I bought a Grampian 23 last year that I had to move about 30 miles up the Chesapeake. Fortunately, I had a couple of avid sailor friends, and we got it all home in one piece. If it hadn't been for the friends, I wouldn't have known even how to raise the sails.

I have lots of experience on the water but none with sailing. Whereas in addition to steering the powerboat has four basic parts (forward, reverse, fast and slow) the sailboat has a squillion parts and you have to know where they all connect.

But, I'm learning. The SN forum is a great resource.

Thanks for reviving this old thread....

OTOH, what is it with people who buy things without the proper knowledge to operate them,ie; boats, guns. This only creates situations where life and property are put in harms way. But don't get me started, there are plenty of motor vehicle licenses handed out to people who don't have a clue on how to drive which creates another set of problems. No regard for public safety. Let's just collect fees and taxes.

Thanks for letting me vent....

I've got blisters on my fingers
